Özet

Natural zeolite clinoptilolite is mined commercially in many areas of Turkey. The current study investigated the removal performance of clinoptilolite from the Manisa-Gordes area on cyanide, which is present in water. Clinoptilolite was broken into pieces, and separated into two particle sizes, -0.40/+0.32 mm and -0.71/+0.40 mm, and the effects of three different initial cyanide concentrations and three different flow rates on cyanide removal capacity were tested. According to batch experimental results, approximately 60% cyanide was removed from the water.
